Unbearable beauty in Geometry

I’ve stared into the very soul of photographs and found something wonderful:

An unmistakable geometry that I’ve coaxed into giving up lots of secrets.   Enough secrets that I’ve been able to create artificial intelligence (machine vision) centered around what I’ve found.   An ‘AI’ that finds the very truth about the space it is examining and exploits it to create one touch perspective correction with unmistakably correct proportions, even a good estimation of scale.  (a scale which is easily adjusted just as quickly afterwards)   then on top, it throws in a few dimensions to show what it has found.

An ‘AI’ vision that goes far beyond line recognition,  I’ve found that this process is examining the very essence of the space that is presented by the digital data in the photograph.
